Sad Panda is a scrappy little indie team made up of panache, sarcasm and great big dreams. Currently located in a basement, they hope to move up to a rec room or a breakfast nook someday. Crush Crush is their first game, and they look forward to surprising and delighting their fans with lots of great updates, big and small. Check them out on the social internets, yo!


Early History

Sad Panda is a delicious blend of tasty ingredients, with past experience making video games, comics, animations and computer chips. After years of staring longingly into the darkening twilight, imagining what could be, they finally took the plunge in 2016 to forge their own game company. At first considering whether to make a AAA FPS or a super competitive MOBA, they finally settled on a fun and flirty dating game instead. Crush Crush combines their passions for quirky game design, slick platform-leaping code, and beautiful ladies!
